It simply gets better and better for young apprentice O'Brien White. Starting his riding career in September of 2012, White did very little in the saddle to prompt racing fans to give him support. Many were of the view that White, who is described as a 'child of the racetrack' based on living so close to Caymanas Park, was going nowhere. All this has now changed. Last Saturday he became the first of his batch to ride three winners on a raceday, and lo and behold, the young man scored another triple on the Ash Wednesday programme, She's So Special for Ryan Darby, Carpe Diem for Stephen Todd and Burning Medic for Carl Anderson. While the winners have been flowing for the young man, which has boosted his confidence, White is demonstrating noticeable improvement in his riding skills. His handling of She's So Special, when after taking the lead leaving the four-furlong marker, White settled the mare using hands in the straight to hold off the challenge of Dr Blair. Keep the wins coming Mr White and continue to put in the hard work necessary. Well done.

BUBBLING ANGELINE CONTINUES TO PROGRESS

Bubbling Angeline, the first progeny of the stallion Blue Pepsi Lodge to race, is developing very well. The chestnut filly showed the progress she is making on Ash Wednesday when without even breaking a proper sweat, Bubbling Angeline destroyed a field mainly comprised of foreign entrants by a whopping 11 lengths. She finished the six furlongs of the race in 1:13.1 minutes.
